Michelin Pilot Road 2 Front Tires

  • The ideal balance Independent tests confirm the Pilot Road 2 offers better wet grip and longer tread life than any of its competitors.
  • How did Michelin incorporate these two contradictory traits in one tire? MotoGP-derived 2CT technology makes it possible, using two distinct rubber compounds to achieve what was once thought impossible
  • Innovative front and rear tread designs
  • Winner, 2009 Motorrad and Moto Revue sport touring tire tests

Breathed new life to FZ8 Night and day difference from stocks. -Feel much more grip in corners -Comfortable at high speeds -Wet riding traction is more than acceptable Would buy again and recommend to everyone. November 16, 2015
Amazing addition to my FZ8 My tires were showing metal so I needed to buy new ones. Did my research and came across these. Ordered them, they were here in 1 day, had them installed at my local dealership and they have breathed new life into my bike. -Extremely comfortable taking corners tighter than stock rubber (Even Wet just not as comfortable as dry lol) -Feels like it grips 10x better now -Comfortable on the freeway -Looks like they will last but will have to see for myself in a thousand miles All in all, would purchase again November 16, 2015
very planted nice progressive turn in. Very predictable handling. Slower steering in than the sportmax tires they replaced but very satisfied for everyday riding. August 6, 2015
Good tire, good value. Somewhat difficult to find, though. The tire has been very serviceable and the price was reasonable. July 1, 2015
Quality worth the price These tires are a top of the line product and are competativly priced. Shipping was very fast. I would definitely buy again. July 6, 2015
Tech recommended, rider approved Shop recommended this tire to me yesterday when I asked about replacing baby's old cracked shoes. Service writer said he runs them on his own bike - yeah right, they all say that, except that he then showed me. Sold. I've put about 100 mostly highway miles on them, all dry since, you know, Arizona. Baby feels 100% surefooted at any speed and any lean angle, on the brakes and off. Can't wait to get out and rub them chickenstrips off. May 23, 2015
Good Commuter Tire Came from Pilot Powers that only lasted about 4500 miles. These are not quite as sticky but I mainly use my bike for commuting so thats not a big deal. I have put about 2000 miles on them so far and it looks like these will last much longer that the powers. I have only ridden once in the rain since I put these on (live in Las Vegas) and I felt very confident with these tires. January 26, 2015
Execellent Execellent tire, grip the road when warmed up on the hwy and easy to curve the road with to enjoy :) February 19, 2015

Christine N: very recommended tire May 7, 2014
Thomas C: Its the OEM tire for the R1200RT Apr 16, 2014
Philip S: I want a radial front tire to go with the Anakee radial rear tire I bought for an old BMW K100RS. From experience I prefer the PR2 to the PR3 for steering feel and agility. The PR3 slows the steering down more than I like. Apr 11, 2014
V A: Best sport-touring tire for various bikes. I use it on all of my bikes- Ninja 650R, Yamaha FJR1300, V-Strom 650, DukeII, etc... Lasts around 20k miles, grips amazingly. Mar 23, 2014
Kevin H: I was considering the PR3 and PR4, but saw a lot of reviews online saying that the PR2 is still a fantastic tire that has been tried and tested for years. A lot of people still stand by it over the PR3/PR4. It is also more affordable than the PR3 and PR4. Mar 4, 2014
Norman B: I already had one. Got almost 14,000 miles it. Jan 7, 2014
A s: Needed new tires and heard they were good ones. Dec 19, 2013
A s: These tires have excellent grip and wear like iron. Love my PR2's. Dec 5, 2013

David B: high mileage tire with great wet weather traction.3000 miles on them still look brand new.2010 vfr 1200 Nov 15, 2013
Eddie L: Best $ on the internet, and BMW K1600 GT fitment, great service! Sep 22, 2013
Mathew B: "Because I will not be riding that much in the rain and do not see you point of paying more for the 3s if im not going to use them. also because I ride my bike everyday so I need somthing that can handle my style of riding. " Aug 30, 2013
Douglas G: Favorable reviews Aug 26, 2013
James N: Replacing the same tire that is one my bike with around 10K + miles on them. Rear tire got punctured. The front is still very servicable at this milage but decided to replace as a set. Aug 20, 2013
Christopher C: This will be my 2nd set of Pilot Road 2s on my 2009 R6. My first pair have about 10,000 miles on them and I will probably put another 1-3 miles on them before I put the 2nd set on. Aug 13, 2013
James S: I ride a Speed Triple as my commuter and I ride 60+ miles a day just to and from work. I need a tyre with good longevity yet something that care take a corner or to and still stick (thanks to the dual compound). I ride in Las Vegas so rain isn't too much of an issue which means I didn't feel I needed the Pilot Road 3. Also warming up my tyres isn't too hard to do in Vegas (unless its winter). Overall I'm looking forward to trying these tyres out and fingers crossed they are as good as I hope. Aug 10, 2013
Kenneth S: I get good wear out of the tire about 10,000 miles. Aug 9, 2013
